Toy makers NECA are on a roll lately with their horror action figures. One franchise in particular seeing a lot of love lately is A Nightmare on Elm Street, which will be getting another figure in the form of Freddy Krueger's chef outfit from Part 5: The Dream Child.

From the cult classic Nightmare on Elm Street movies, this clothed action figure is based on Freddy’s memorable appearance as a chef in The Dream Child!

Freddy stands 8″ tall and is fully articulated. He comes with a chef hat and a gruesome serving tray with removable lid. Blister packaging with resealable protective clamshell features custom artwork created by Nathan Thomas Milliner just for this release!

As with the other recently-announced Freddy figures, this one is being done in the classic "Mego" style, meaning that all of his clothes (and chef hat) will be made of actual cloth. Chef Freddy is set to be released in September with an MSRP of $35.99 USD.

Will you be adding Chef Freddy to your collection or are this line's figures starting to get too oddly-specific to certain scenes? Is that even a bad thing? Let us know in the comments below and bon appétit!
